Top 5 Backup Running Backs

Postby trevorahlert » Mon Sep 05, 2005 11:28 pm

Here are my top 5 fanstasy backup running backs for the 2005-2006 season. I posted this on my blog the other day. Let me know who got left off and who should get bumped.

1. Larry Johnson: No Brainer. He ran for 581 yards and 9 touchdowns when Priest went down last year. If Holmes goes down again, you may be looking at the top scoring fanstasy back in the NFL.

2. Tatum Bell: Whoever runs for the Broncos is practically guaranteed to light it up. Mike Anderson has been named the starter, but we all know how quick the Broncos are to change running backs. If Anderson gets yanked, Bell will fill in just fine.

3. DeShaun Foster: Most people expected him to start this year, but it looks like Stephen Davis is back. Davis is injury prone and if he doesn't hold up, look for Foster to take over.

4. Mewelde Moore: Lots of big play ability, and he plays behind the freqently injured Michael Bennett. I'd be really suprised if Moore doesn't at least start a couple of games this year.

5. Chester Taylor: This guy always puts up huge numbers when Jamal Lewis is out.

I like your list. I personally would put Cedric Benson at least at #3. It won't take an injury for him to be starting (like Johnson, Taylor). I believe he'll be getting the lion's share of the carries by Week 8.

i like najeh davenport behind ahman green. he runs well each time he gets a shot (above a 5ypc avg.), and green is facing legal issues at the moment.

Don't forget Domanic Rhodes - legit #1 with full season stats to prove it - behind Edge.

As long as we arent talking about actual skill - but rather the situation they are in, then of course you have to go with LJ. If the discussion were based on actual skill then the outcome would be wildly different.

I don't consider Bell a backup. I doubt Anderson starts more than 2-4 weeks.
